Having worked multiple festivals on the field on team proper, Cali Roots has always been one of our favorites with regards to music discovery and community experience.
The 7th Annual California Roots Fest brings itself to the forefront of the reggae – roots world May 27, 2016 to Sunday, May 29, 2016… but for those not able to make it – all is not lost.
Maintaining its ideal of being a progressive festival based on the ideas of reggae and roots, they have – in California fashion – extended their hand to the tech sector to spread their message and vibe through the airwaves. Partnering with LiveList, they are bringing their live experience to the digi-scape for the first time with the intent of opening up opportunities to tell more unique stories about the music and community that has embraced their vibe.
Headlined by Slightly Stoopid, Rebelution, Atmosphere, Stephen “Ragga” Marley, Damian “Jr Gong” Marley, and Michael Franti and Spearhead, and featuring a heavy dose of Caribbean artists this year, including Protege, Raging Fyah, Barrington Levy and Tarrus Riley, the event will feature live DJs for the first time, with sounds provided by artists such as Amp Live, Westafa and Dub Architect, and more. From jump, tuning in already seems like a win-win situation for both sides of this equation.
